PURPOSE & BACKGROUND

 

This course provides detailed instruction on how to design with concrete to maximize environmental performance of buildings and project sites. It will help attendees utilize concrete building systems to design high performance buildings that conserve energy and maximize occupant comfort.

 

The seminar provides detailed background on stormwater best-management practices, including pervious concrete pavement systems in combination with bio-retention swales, conventional concrete pavements, and green roofs to reduce stormwater runoff and the overall impact of the built environment. It provides suggestions on how concrete can be used to minimize urban heat islands and reduce carbon footprints. The course also includes suggestions on how to incorporate optimal recycled content into concrete to balance environmental impact and long-term durability.

 

Attendees will learn the details of concrete building systems and pavements, including design methodologies and construction techniques to minimize environmental impact. This course will also help attendees design and write project specifications for sustainable concrete building and pavement systems.
